    It is possible to send the output of the parallel port to a host device file
    on Linux and Windows. I remember that it worked some years ago with non-GDI
    printers connected the host parallel port. I don't know whether or not this
    feature still works with more modern USB printers.

    Access to the host file system is possible when using the VVFAT hard disk
    image mode. A host directory appears as a virtual drive in Bochs. Please see
    the user documentation for details.

    Hi,

    at the moment i got, that i only have to set the path of my host-directory
    into the image-field.
    But now i get the message
    "Directory does not fit in FAT16 (capacity 504 MB)"
    I don't know where i can tell bochs that my Folder c:/test will be ntfs.
